- Interviewer: Is songwriting your means of finding love?
- Pete: Hmm... (grimace) I thought so, but really the one or two people that I thought I was in love with, they've never really been big fans of my music. In a way it's good because you know that they're not with you just because they like your music, but it's sad. Everything you do at a certain time in your life, no matter what the song's about, all the energy is really directed towards that one person. Whatever that was for Carl. Or for Kate. Or for someone else I fell in love with.
"Peter, disgusted at the thought of Carl dressed as a waiter, gatecrashed, seized the tray of vol-au-vents Carl was carrying and told him that handing out pastries was beneath him."
NB: I’m 99.9% certain that this is the same incident at the Old Vic that Carl alludes to in Threepenny Memoir, but it’d be pretty funny if Peter had a tendency to disrupt Carl’s jobs. Not to mention sneaking onto the Old Vic stage, collecting flowers and giving them to him at the bar. ;)
